About This Class

Flower arranging is a great way to explore new skills from the comfort of home. Please respect all rules of social distancing when sourcing your plants. 

Looking for fresh inspiration or a creative escape? Discover nature’s most abundant and accessible medium—flowers!

As a self-taught florist who started selling bouquets out of his Volkswagen van, Spencer Falls believes that flowers are for absolutely everyone. Now a celebrated florist, Spencer shares a simple, flexible framework that will bring the beauty of nature indoors as your new favorite hobby!

Whether you’re working with a garden or a grocery store, this hands-on class will guide you through every step of creating lush, colorful arrangements that spark creativity and calm.

Working with Spencer, you’ll learn how to:

  • Pick and prepare flowers that won’t break the bank
  • Build bouquets around color, texture, and composition
  • Unlock the meditative power of working with your hands
  • Create permanent art pieces using dried flowers

Plus, ignite your imagination in Spencer’s Venice, CA studio, where he opens up about his personal process, winding path to success, and the tips and tricks he’s learned along the way. 

Designed for the curious and the creative, in just under an hour this class will have you working with flowers as comfortably as you work with your pencils, paints, or tablet. Get started with a brand new way to expand your skills, brighten your home, and express your creativity like never before!


This class is open to students of all levels, and designed to be taken year round. All you need is access to plants, scissors, and a vase or twine to hold your arrangement.
